Question about ATI ALL-IN-WONDER X600 PRO, (256 MB) Graphic Card
Hey there, I'm having problems playing games with a recently (newly)
installed ATI graphics card. Here is some information about my current
Adapter Type: ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro
Chip Type: ATI Radeon Graphics Processor (0x9589)
Memory Size: 512 MB
I run on a Intel() Inside motherboard and the computer is kind of old (about 3 years or so) and I had decided to upgrade it recently. I installed several hardware such as a bigger HD (250 gigs to be exact), a bigger power supply (550W) than the previous 300W, and I also bought an extra Memory Chip (512 MB) which brings me to a total of 1024 MB of memory.
The problem here, as I see some other people have, is that all the games I try to play end up with the same result. Which happens to be the "No Signal" message which appears on my monitor shortly after I start a game, see screen tearing, endure the painful "screen freeze" and then a short blink of orange or yellow on the screen.
The first time I had trouble with this graphics card was the day I had brought it back from the workshop. It worked fine for about an hour or so but then I saw screen tearing and it eventually got worse from there. I would get a blue screen saying a "Ati2dvag driver" was the cause of the error. Later on through the month, It had stopped showing the error, but continued to have problems (the "No Signal" message). I also tried reinstalling drives, downgrading to (some) lower drives (wasn't sure of which specific drive, but was sure it fixed ati2dvag problem) and reinstalling Windows (XP Home Edition) without any positive result.
The only upgrades the workshop had done for me were the installation of the graphics card and the installation of the HD (which were not simultaneous). The HD was installed about a month after the graphics card. So basically, I had to install the power supply and the memory chips myself (which worked fine). I am currently using an Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.93GHz processor and a Intel Desktop Board. The ATI card I use has a DVI connection (I use a VGA to DVI connector for my monitor).
Only games found on the web (such as flash/java/etc) are playable for me right now.. all other highly or mildly graphical games do not work. Before I had updated my system with the ATI graphics card, all the games I had worked pretty normal with the exception of lag and so forth.
The workshop had came up with several solutions such as cleaning out my computer (both physically and virtually) which I had done and that did not solve the problem. They had also recommended upgrading my drive and getting extra memory which I had done, having little to no new or unexpected results (after 1 hour, game play was impossible).
Here are the games I have tried without success;
-Dark Messiah of Might and Magic
-World of Warcraft
Problems also occur while I watch High-Definition videos as the screen turns an inverted color scheme and is slowed down, possibly lagging.
I would appreciate some help :)
Hello to you.look..here is a quite sad solution.
I have many computers in my home and one of them has a MSI ati radeon 9550 td/256 ddr2 on it,a mainboard via kt 400 from MSI and an old athlon xp 2400++,1 gmemory.
I ask you to belive me that on this old computer I played and still play all the games on the market.for instance the super graphic game stalker.
ok..from my experience I tell you...your board supports fine almost every new game now on stores.
the problem you have unfortunatelly is a phisical problem.
your video card has ,as you told me,lack of signal and strange behaviour.
first of all,try this.
take a new ati catalist from ati/amd site or from www.guru3d.com.
if with this up to date driver it doesnt work...well...try also to make a 3d mark test to see how its going..
if you fail this test wellagain..
well if you discover that the software problem is out of discussion..
the board is damaged in this case,which means the rams from it ,in the most of the cases are damaged..It can be a factory mistacke,by puting there rams with differnt latencyes..they work for a while and bang...fail...thats why the old drivers work fine ..they dont need the same resources like new ones.
In this case I suggest you to bring it back and ask for a replacement..
